's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't kno
locations? what about voters who lost everything, including their photo i.d.? joe johns from washington joining me now. if anyone knows these questions, you do. do you think the election will be postponed ? what will happen in states like new jersey where many people are dealing with other things rather than worrying about getting to the polls? >> it's hard to say that an election like this will be postpone postponed. there are so many states in the united states that simply were not affected. and if you were to postpone for one state or two states, you would have what would be called an equal protection challenge and you could go to court and fight it. so, what's much more likely to happen, carol, is that the places that have problems -- we're talking about counties and specific precincts that have determined they have a problem. they'll do something to fix it, whether they'll move the polling place or there are some states that even have laws or rules where you can, you know, incrementally move the date or time, something along those lines. there are a lot of different options they ca
for one another, that's why we always bounce back from these kinds of disasters. >> let's bring in john nichols washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine and author of the book "uprising." the american middle class in this election cycle has been at the focal point of many conversations. this is the economic portion of america that's been asked to do more. this is the portion of america that has had their voices in the workplace attacked. their pensions cut. their wages sliced and yet we see when there is an emergency as what we are seeing with this storm, they step up and they are americans. what does it say about this country in the middle of this hot political debate that performances such as this are delivered by these americans? >> well, it's pretty inspiring, ed, and you're right, in many ways this year's election is a referendum on not just government. that's too vague a term. it's on the human infrastructure of public services in this country, the people who go out and make sure that when you go to sleep at night, and a storm is coming in, that that next morning you'll s
to the set with john bussey. we are looking at how the jobs we in the private sector are shaping up. gear shaping up to be the biggest gain since february, a very big and important move. if you get a paper paycheck, their name could be at bottom it, private sector numbers, obviously, and it is one that we obviously watched to predict what going on. they recently redid how they figures this out and trying to make it look like labor department numbers. >>shepard: the markets liked what it heard, we are up triple digits. >>gerri: the new york stock exchange c.e.o. trying to get everything back on track and they are using backup generators down this, so, having a few issues, traders still having trouble with cell phones internet access and we will see how it goes and hopefully it will be under control soon. >>shepard: i cannot keep my eyes off these photos coming in. this is in queens at the rockaways, eight or nine miles from that place at breezy point where the houses burned, the rockaways you may remember there was a bad plane crash william after the attacks of 9/11 when we were skittish a
